This month at Artful Bag Challenge, it was ATC swapping time, and I was soooooo excited to get to trade with Julie Forest (from Juls Art Niche)... I am such an admirer of her work !!! The ATC, of course, had to feature a bag, purse, clutch, satchel, whatever you may call it. Julie's Atc was "Bold" and beautiful. (I can totally see me rockin a purse just like this...hahaha), and then Julie being so clever, added a special little treat. When opened, the purse exclaims "Walk on the Wild Side"... love it Julie... thank you! The colors are vibrant, and just pop!!!! My Atc I sent Julie had to do with Mary Poppins... I have ALWAYS loved her big carpet bag, and so I tried to copy that by making a purse using G45 Fashionista and paper transferred it to sticky back canvas. Spray painted a little umbrella and "SPIT SPOT SPIC AND SPAN, Practically Perfect" (well not sure about that) but Julie did say she enjoyed the ATC... very fun challenge. Great time meeting new friends from across the globe. Pop over to Julies blog for some awesome inspiration.

Yay! So glad your ATC arrived and that you like it! I totally got the Mary Poppins theme immediately (one of my favorite movies of all time!) Your carpet bag is awesome and I love the umbrella!! ;)I've really enjoyed exchanging with you!!
